Thoughts, opinions, observations and rambling diatribes composed during distance long runs. Steve Runner is a mild mannered middle-of-the-pack distance runner who shares the output of his cranial stimulation with his audience while training for his next marathon. Phedippidations is a PodCast (or “RunCast�?) named after the legendary Greek messenger: Phedippides. A modern day messenger of sorts; Steve runs near his home in Central Massachusetts.
Each show is dedicated to an aspect of running, covering topics such as: training, injury, gadgets, nutrition, strategies and his pathetic attempts at breaking four hours. Because many of these programs are recorded on the run, Steve tends to drift onto too many off topic discussions, but if you’ve ever wondered what was going on in the heads of those Sunday morning runners you’ve seen plodding through heat waves, torrential downpours or blinding snow storms: then Phedippidations is the PodCast for you.

Im running my first marathon this upcoming April and as someone who is a middle of the pack runner myself I find your podcasts to be great. I found your Wish for the runners of the 115th Boston Marathon video on YouTube and often listen to it before a long run after work. Very inspiring and great to be able to listen to a fellow middle of the pack runner.

Thanks to the others....
Other podcasts for runners suggested checking out THIS podcast, and as it turns out, this guy Steve records a lot of podcasts and they are incredible. So that means that I now have to listen to 200+ podcasts before I can move on and tune in to others again. Some how got addicted to the rambling... Haha But more importantly the hard work and educational listening. Thanks so much for this stuff Steve!
